The conference will take place at the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT), CEA Paris/Saclay, on June 24-26, 2024. It will focus on Philippe's many research interests : conformal field theories, integrable systems, random matrices, enumerative and bijective combinatorics, bidimensional quantum gravity, tilings and arctic curves, cluster algebras... The list of speakers includes :

  • Gernot Akemann (Bielefeld University & University of Bristol)
  • Guillaume Barraquand (LPENS, CNRS/École normale supérieure)
  • Denis Bernard (LPENS, CNRS/École normale supérieure)
  • Philippe Biane (LIGM, CNRS/Université Gustave Eiffel)
